Every year there is one post or quote or something that exemplifies what it is like to be part of the big show, and this year, Mariah Huehner said it as she contemplates her first San Diego ever.

It feels like, right now, to me at least, that many of the people I know are having lives that’re taking off, Mine included. It’s very strange and amazing and completely immediate. That’s how right now feels. It’s like sitting in your car with music playing and you’re on a long stretch of highway. And a song you love but haven’t heard in awhile comes on. You can see your life stretching out in front of you and at the same time you can tangibly feel your life happening. Who you are, what you’re doing, where you were, and possibly where you’re going. Although where you’re going is the part that is happening right now and the fact that you know part of it, but not the whole, is the exhilarating, terrifying, goose-bumpy part. The part that makes everything more alive and real and NOW. Because you can feel it happening right NOW.

Yeah that’s it. Enjoy it while you can, everyone. Inky, I will see you on the other side.
